Movie Review "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra"

"G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," with Channing Tautum, Dennis Quaid, one of the Wayan brothers, and that guy who was in that "(500) Days of Summer" movie

The same guy who made this made The Mummy (the one with Brenden Fraser, who makes a cameo), so they both are the same thing. Cheesy. As hell. For people who were not kids in the 80s, this movie is based on the newer G.I. Joe stuff, not the original. So that's why there's laser guns, ninjas, and really tacky armor that would make Iron Man go into hysterics. The movie has been made for both kids and adults at the same time. But maybe that's why it's so good.

I hated this movie at first. The first several minute consists of some guy in the 1600s getting burned in the face, and some army guys being attacked by dudes with *squeal* laser guns. Eventually, it gets to the point where, stupid or not, you can't help but like it.

Don't get me wrong, this is good, but Transformers outdoes it by a lot. It looks better, has better characters, plot, and a lot more laughs. In Transformers, the comedy is unintentional and therefore hilarious. In this, they try on purpose, and mess up. There's also some things that even as sci-fi as this movie gets, cannot possibly happen. The redheaded woman (who is the "Megan Fox" of the movie and almost as hot) graduated college at twelve, according to another one of the Joes. A woman that hot graduating at that age? Nahhhh. And in another scene, where Channing Tautum's character is led into the evil lair, in the freezing cold wearing a leather jacket and jeans and everyone else is wearing thin clothes, how come they act like it's Miami? God knows.

But if you want a decent action flick (and you don't mind Iron Man ripoffs), then this is for you. But don't expect anything spectacular.

Score: 7/10

Hot Redhead Chick Score: 9.9/10
